I completely flunked NaNoWriMo this year because I moved on November 1st and effectively spent the rest of the year assembling furniture and figuring out where to put my matryoshka. Maybe next year.
All this time not doing the things I expected to get done has resulted in revisiting my approach to writing. I am still going to try to put more hours in, however I am no longer going to be focused on producing content for the eyes of others—for my fiction writing, anyway. I’ll still drop some reviews and thoughts here whenever possible. In fact, I have a couple things in the pipeline that were stalled by the move but can be posted soon!
Of course, this means there will be virtually no change as far as the outer world is concerned. But for once, I am going to put a little less pressure on myself. Hopefully, this will lead to more writing and creativity, and less stress and writerly despair. Huzzah!
I wish you all a lovely 2014! Happy New Year!
